OsteoBiol by Tecnoss

INTERNATIONAL HANDS-ON
HUMAN CADAVER COURSE

DESCRIPTION OF THE COURSE:

The course deals with the application of the main basic and advanced techniques of regenerative surgery around dental implants, with associated dissection on cadaver of the related muscle and neurovascular tissues.

Starting from the elevation of full-thickness and partial-thickness flaps, the described surgical techniques will be performed first, followed by dissection of the anatomical structures surrounding the surgical area.

The dissection taught will be a “clinically oriented” dissection by planes, that is to say structured with the objective of understanding, through the acquisition of the anatomical data, how to prevent and manage haemorrhage and neurosensorial complications, intra- and postoperatively respectively.

This approach is essential to dispel doubts and fears during the application of the techniques, while increasing your clinical skills.

The course is conducted on anatomical preparations of fresh-frozen cadavers that ensure maximum safety for the participants from the point of view of infections and provide an ideal superimposability to the living person.

85% of the course will be focused on practice, the keyword will be “do” and the more theoretical aspects will be combined with hands-on demonstrations.

One head for every 2 participants will be made available to give everybody the opportunity to take part directly.

Frequently asked questions

General questions

The Academy of Craniofacial Anatomy was established in May 2021 and, as a cultural association, aims at promoting the study and scientific research of the anatomy of  facial massif through  constant training  in cadaver dissection, proposed by anatomists and surgeons with a considerable experience in the field of dissection of the craniofacial region, and scientific contributions in the form of online and paper publications together with online courses.

The Academy prides itself of an international teaching staff of anatomists and clinicians with a considerable experience in the field of anatomical dissection, and boasts a strong partnership with the professors of the Department of cranio-cervico-facial anatomy at Université René Descartes Paris 5, a historical reference center for anatomic dissection in Europe, and one of the most prestigious in the world.

We are honored to have as our honorary president Prof. Jean-François Gaudy, Full Professor of Anatomy at the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery of the Université René Descartes Paris 5, Paris.

The purpose of the Academy is to offer a ONE-OF-A KIND training with an approach that must be first as an anatomist and then as a clinician; for this reason  dissection anatomy courses are given first, followed by courses on the application of the surgical techniques, with diversified modules based on the level and the clinical needs of each participant.

The courses will take place at an exclusive venue, i.e. at the Cadaver Lab of Trecchi Palace, a historical mansion of inestimable artistic and cultural value, built in 1496,  situated in the historic centre of the city of Cremona.

The motto of our academy is “we see ONLY what we know” and this really means that if we do not know an anatomic structure in detail, it will certainly be unlikely for us to prevent and manage the related complications.

Thanks to anatomical dissection, the muscular and neurovascular tissues of interest and their anatomical variability can be seen with own eyes, and this aspect is fundamental for the growth of a surgeon in order to learn how to manage and above all to prevent haemorrhage and neurosensorial complications.

Anatomy

The terms “anatomical dissection and “autopsy” should not be confused,   they are not the same: while autopsy is performed by a pathologist in order to ascertain the cause/s of death, and therefore it is not necessarily conservative, anatomical dissection is a highly conservative practice performed by an anatomist and is based on the separation of the different planes and the visualization of three-dimensional relationships among individual structures.

In spite of the innovative,  radiological examination and the continuous evolution of surgical techniques, the study of dissection anatomy remains central; surgeons believe that the direct experience on cadavers is irreplaceable and that anatomical dissection takes on a fundamental importance in the training of graduate students and updating of specialistis.

Anatomical dissection is the main teaching and learning instrument to get to know human body through direct experience, and it distinguishes itself from autopsy and surgical practice.

It was also defined by Dyer & Thorndike (2000) as “the universally recognized passage to become a physician.”

Indeed, only through training on cadavers, anatomy, from a mnemonic subject of study in books, becomes a true mirror of reality, allowing the clinician to acquire the sense of tissue consistency, to directly identify the most complex anatomical details and to learn the three-dimensional relationships of vessels, nerves and organs in the different parts of the body.

One head for every 2 participants will be made available to give everybody the opportunity to  take part directly.

The participants themselves will perform the dissection of the anatomical structures and will apply the described surgical techniques directly on the cadaver, using the instruments and materials made available.

80% of the courses are focused on practice, the keyword will be “do” and the more theoretical aspects will often be accompanied by  hands-on demonstrations.

Everyone  attending the courses will receive a certificate of participation in the training program of the Academy and for each module the relevant CME credits provided by the Ministry of Health will be issued.
